The People Who Play with Theatre present a charming and sometimes dark story of love and concrete and how the two don’t mix. From the acclaimed writer of This Kitchen is Not Imaginary and The Suicidal Airplane Ben Anderson comes this bitter-sweet puppet show about a boy’s quest to find out why he is unable to love.

Armed with a pickaxe and guided by the cryptic clouds that float past, Boy smashes his way through the hard crust of his concrete heart but with every new layer he must face past horrors and challenge lies that he holds close. Aided by Girl, who is not what she seems, Boy is drawn into an absurd spiral of bewilderment.

Fantastical and enigmatic, Just Above the Clouds uses table-top puppetry, glowing lantern-esque imagery and incorporates genuine innovation to create a Tim Burton-esque dreamlike sensibility.

‘Playwright Ben Anderson should be commended for his bravery in not feeling that he has to conform. He takes multitude of risks which includes incorporating amazing and seldom attempted constructed imagery woven into a strong, relevant story’ - Theatrescenes (This Kitchen is Not Imaginary)
